Egemstore was founded as a high end online retail outlet where people could find and purchase quality fine jewelry from the convenience of their home. For the jewelry connoisseur living in a town with few fine jewelers or the time-strapped nine-to-fiver who can't find the time to get to the store, Egemstore strives to bring variety and excellence straight to your home.
For nearly four thousand years, the beauty of gemstones has been enhanced by various methods. Before modern stone-cutting techniques were developed, oils and dyes were used to bring out the color in stones. Since ancient civilization, emeralds have been soaked in colorless oil to make them appear more beautiful. This practice continues today.
It was also discovered that heating certain gemstones could produce changes in color. Legend has it that Marco Polo observed the application of heat to rubies in Ceylon and introduced the practice in Europe. The heating process is a practice that has been accepted worldwide.
Our Enhancement Policy:
Egemstore selects only the finest gemstones for its jewelry. Our gemstones are inspected for quality, beauty and durability. We select stones to meet our standard for color, clarity and cut. We accept enhancement that’s meant to improve the beauty of the stone. However, we do not use any enhanced gemstones to increase a stone’s weight, or to mask it potential durability unless otherwise certified.
